Jordan Sanders posted a topic in Delphi Third-PartyDevart, a recognized vendor of connectivity solutions for various databases and cloud services, released the public beta of ODBC driver for NexusDB. The driver can be used to access data in NexusDB databases from various analytics, database management and reporting tools, IDEs and programming languages on Windows (32/64 bit): Excel, Power BI, Tableau, RAD Studio, Lazarus, dbForge Studio, RStudio, and many others. The vendor also notes that Devart ODBC driver for NexusDB provides full support for the standard ODBC API functions and data types and can connect to the NexusDB server directly via TCP/IP. It also supports multilingual NexusDB databases, be it Latin, Cyrillic, or Chinese. As an extra benefit comes cost-effective deployment: the driver is a standalone installation file that does not require the user to install or update any dependencies, while large organizations with hundreds of machines can use the silent install method with an OEM license. Users can download the new driver on the vendor’s website to test it for 30 days for free with the third-party tools. The driver is also available for pre-order.

Hi, We are trying to add the functionality to allow the user to change the SQL server password if it is expired. The following code snippet using TFDConnection shows what we are trying to do: FDConnection1.Params.Values['Server'] := 'SQLExpress'; FDConnection1.Params.Values['Database'] := 'TestDatabase'; FDConnection1.Params.Values['User_Name'] := 'testuser'; FDConnection1.Params.Values['Password'] := 'oldpass'; FDConnection1.Params.NewPassword := 'newpass'; FDConnection1.Open; But when we get an error while trying to change it: [FireDAC][Phys][ODBC][Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver] Login failed for user 'testuser'. (Error Code is 18456) Tools we use: RAD Studio 10.2 FireDAC = 16.0.0 (Build 88974) Platform = Windows 32 bit SQL Server 2016 express edition ODBC Driver 17 for SQL server. What we observed is that if we use then it works with a patch in FireDAC units. (While debugging we found that it uses a method TFDPhysMSSQLConnection.CheckPasswordChange which uses a connection to check the SQL versions but by that time the connection was not able to make because of the password expiration. So we commented the code inside "CheckPasswordChange" and then it started to work.) But we are told to use ODBC Driver because Microsoft is not going to support Native Client in the future. Is it possible to change an expired password using FireDAC in combination with ODBC driver.? If that is possible then any advice to fix the problem mentioned above? Kind Regards, Soji Mathew.
